Year 2 GCSE Physical Education (2 year course)

COVID Update

Following on from rising covid rates in Leicestershire, the Local Authority has asked that face masks be reintroduced in all secondary schools for students and staff in communal areas. This is a sensible way to help keep students, staff and our wider community safe from covid this winter. 

Therefore, from Monday, we are requesting that all students (except those with a medical exemption) wear a face mask travelling on school transport, in corridors and when queueing indoors for food. 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in keeping our local communities healthy and safe.

Year 2 GCSE Physical Education (2 year course)

autumn term

Unit:

2 theory lessons per week covering the following topics:

  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Muscles
  • Warm up and Cool Down
  • Components of fitness
  • Principles of training
  • Aerobic and Anaerobic Training – different methods of training

4 weeks will be spent completing coursework worth 10% of overall grade

 

One practical lesson each week covering the following sports: 

Football

Basketball

  • Bones – know certain bones on the skeleton, be able to label them, know their functions, apply these to sporting examples
  • Joints - Know the definition and examples of synovial joints, describe using sporting examples, the 6 types of sporting movement that occur at the synovial joints, explain the roles of other components of joints
  • Muscles – know certain muscles in the body, be able to label them, know how they are involved in movement
  • Warm up and Cool Downs – identify the components of a warm up and cool down, describe the benefits of why we warm up and cool down, to design a warm up that is specific to a certain sport
  • Movement analysis - know and understand the three classes of lever, know the location of the planes of movement, know the location of the axes of rotation in the body
  • Fitness components and tests – to know all the components of fitness, to develop an understanding of the fitness test associated with that specific component of fitness, to understand the full procedure of each fitness test
  • Principles of training – know the definitions of the principles of training, to understand the elements of training, to understand all the different types of training methods and how they apply to certain sport
  • Aerobic/Anaerobic Training methods – to know the difference between aerobic and anaerobic training, be able to describe all different training methods, give sporting examples of different training methods including knowing whether they are anaerobic or aerobic or both.
  • Coursework – analyse another performer in a sport on the assessment criteria list of chosen sports – analyse their strengths and weaknesses and write them up – what makes that skill a strength/weakness (give evidence), why was the skill good/bad? Give reasons why they are good/bad at the skill? With the weaknesses assessed – create an action plan for the weakness judged the most important using the principles of training, also including information on muscles, bones, joints and skill classification for the prioritised weakness

 

Complete each practical within GCSE guidelines for assessment criteria.

Social, Moral, Spiritual & Cultural and British Values Links

SMSC: Spiritual experiences, Moral e.g. playing by the rules of the game, Social includes working and socialising with pupils from different religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, Cultural is shown by pupils willingness to participate in different sporting opportunities from different countries therefore learning about them and where they came from.  

British Values: Democracy – all students participate in all lessons equally – no barriers to participation, Rule of Law - Classroom expectations and sanctions are followed by each member of staff. Rules of games are also abided by when playing, Individual Liberty – extra-curricular opportunities are offered for all, Mutual Respect – part of our school ethos and behaviour policy and also these values are reinforced through sport, Tolerance to those with different faiths/beliefs – opportunities within school to experience diversity – through working with different peers and also experiencing sports from different cultures.

Home Learning this Term

To support the learning within the subject, pupils can choose to attend extra-curricular clubs for these activities at lunchtimes and after school. Timetables can be found around the PE department in changing rooms, form tutors have a copy for their tutor room boards and it is also on the school website/social media. This could then lead to advancing skills further in these activities and the possibly being selected to play for the school team along with increasing their practical grade for GCSE – where they need 3 practical scores (individual sport, team sport and one other) worth 30% of their overall grade at the end of the course.

Pupils will also receive homework every week in blue homework booklets where they will complete bronze/silver/gold task and 3 practice exam questions on the topic they have studied in class that week. This will be marked by the class teacher.

summer term

Topic
Overview

Anatomy and Physiology and Psychology/SocioCultural Unit:

3 theory lessons per week covering the following topics:

  • Revision methods
  • Revision activities for all topics –  reteach each one with a different revision method
  • Exam question drill/practice

 

Students will have 2 exams at the end of the year which will test them on every topic they have completed over the 2 years. Therefore we will teach students a range of revision styles through each and every topic that they could use when revising at home, such as:

  • Same as year 10 methods
  • Revision cube
  • Draw, mime, describe
  • Story board
  • Revision board games
  • Taboo cards
  • Window wheel
  • Loci

Year 11 GCSE pe Summary

During year 11 students will learn a variety of sporting topics through their 2 theory lessons per week from the Anatomy and Physiology Unit. Each theory lesson will consist of learning about the topic through bronze, silver and gold activities – through a variety of teaching methods including kinaesthetically, followed by a practice exam question finish to off the lesson. Students will be tested every 4 topics by a phase test which will help us to see how they are getting on in theory throughout the course at it is graded 70% through theory.

Students will also complete a piece of coursework this academic year before Christmas on analysis of performance which will be completed in lessons under controlled conditions. This is worth 10% of their final overall grade.

Students will also experience a range of practical topics where they will embed the skills off the GCSE criteria for each sport and put them into game scenarios. Students will attain up to grade 4/5 in class. They will need to play sport for the school team and outside of school to gain higher grades. An indication the exam board gives is to gain grade 7 and above students need to be country standard and above. Practical grads are worth 30% of their final grading and each sport is worth 10% (one team sport, one individual sport and another).
